Author: Alix Anne Shaw

Publisher: Persea (2014)

Driven by a resolute sense of exploration, the exquisite poems in Anne Shaw’s new collection excavate both physical and emotional landscapes, together constituting a mapping of the senses in which rapture and disillusionment shadow each other. This book searches for truth beyond beauty by a poet who shines increasingly bright.

“Anne Shaw writes as if there is no decorum to language at all; her poems will leave you feeling worried and wild, lucidly drunk, gussied up and patted down. This book is a deliriously confusing part of town where you don’t know the bus routes and there are no cabs to be had. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
